Even the strongest competitors aren't going to get to the podium racing with a pair of 2x4s on their feet, but that doesn't mean you need to spend every last cent in your piggy bank to remain competitive. Designed and tested on the hardcore Euro rando circuit, the Fischer Alpattack Ski uses a paulownia wood core with cut out Air Tec channels and carbon fiber stringers to reduce weight to a measly 1. 5lbs per ski without relinquishing the stiffness and control you need to make up time on the descent. Additionally, Fischer's Aeroshape design concentrates mass in the center of the ski, providing a stable platform without tacking on unnecessary and unwieldy ounces around the edges. Angled sidewalls further decrease weight over the edges while simultaneously preventing chipping and damage. The Alpattack also features Fischer's Tour Rocker profile, which combines an early rise tip with a flat tail and traditional camber to provide a short turning radius, easy turn initiation, and enough float to ensure that you don't get caught up in chundery snow. There's a even a skin notch in the tip for easy, secure climbing and fast transitions, because every second counts when you're aiming for that number one spot.
